We spend a lot of time developing very tightly integrated systems with our clients focused on production feedback.
With all this cool technology we must remember that the foundation of great productivity rests in the people. Great field leaders have been tracking productivity and making enhancements with pencil, paper, calculators and watches for many years. The integration of the watch and the calculator was one of the bigger technology enhancements from a few decades ago!
It is the discipline of making production a daily habit that drives results.
It is the learned ability to see production details that informs decisions.
It is the capability to troubleshoot problems that forms the foundation for improvement.
It is ultimately the ability to make improvements and set new standards that really matters.
This all starts with the habit of doing the math with the right degree of detail to make great decisions. Comparing what-if scenarios before starting. Comparing installation methods. Comparing crews. Comparing tools. Comparing everything!
